Manchester United: Predicted XI to face Leicester on Sunday

Manchester United will be aiming to follow-up their progression to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals with a Wembley date in the FA Cup.

The Red Devils travel to the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon with a semi-final place at stake.

Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be tempted to make many changes from the starting XI that managed to claim a big victory in Milan?

Here’s the XI we think he’ll select…

We are predicting as many as many as three changes from the Norwegian at the weekend.

The first of those will likely be between the sticks where David de Gea is available to make his return.

The £19.8m-rated Spaniard has not been in the team since late February so this game could be the perfect opportunity to reintroduce him.

United’s goalkeeper, however, will be supported by an unchanged defence with former Leicester star Harry Maguire marshaling a back-four of himself, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw.

With his winning goal against AC Milan, Paul Pogba also fired himself into contention to start this game. The Frenchman could come into midfield to replace Scott McTominay who could be due a rest. Pogba will line up alongside Fred in the heart of the Red Devils’ midfield.

The real selection problems start occurring for Solskjaer in attack. Marcus Rashford is out of contention with a problem he picked up against Milan, whilst Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial remain doubts.

This will see the likes of Daniel James, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes remain, whilst Amad Diallo could potentially be afforded a rare start amongst the attacking injury crisis.
